What You Need to Know About Vitamin C and Your Gums
Posted on 4/20/2018 by Janie Scholes
Vitamin C is one of the most important compounds found in the body. It is needed by virtually every cell in the body. It supports some of the most important biological functions such as the formation of collagen, the immune system, as well as healing wounds, bones and cartilages. It is no surprise therefore that this vitamin is also critical in the maintenance of your oral health. Here are some of the reasons you need to ensure you are getting adequate quantities of vitamin C in your diet. Protecting Your GumsThe biochemical processes that take place in the body produce free radicals that often have a significant impact on human health. Antioxidants are compounds that assist the body in getting rid of these harmful radicals. Vitamin C contains powerful antioxidants that protect tissues from degeneration resulting from exposure to certain bio-chemical processes. Vitamin C protects the gums from damage and keeps them healthy by facilitating the production of collagen which keep tissues firm and strong. Additionally, the antioxidants in Vitamin C can prevent inflammation by boosting your body's immune response. Prevents ScurvyCenturies ago, many sailors were affected by a disease that they could not pinpoint the cause. The condition was characterized by swollen gums which could eventually lead to teeth falling off. This disease is now known as scurvy. It is caused by lack of vitamin C in the diet which is what caused scurvy amongst sailors taking long voyages. Eating fruits and vegetables can prevent scurvy, which can be a serious condition sometimes requiring complicated procedures to correct. If you want to keep your gums healthy, make sure that you take your vitamins, either by taking a daily multivitamin, or by eating the right foods.
